Hostel is really nice, renovated and clean. Common room and kitchen are really big and good equipped. Breakfast was tasty. Our room (doublebed in a third floor) was really small, good for overnight but wouldn't want to stay there for a week. Location is perfect, just over the bridge to the Tumski island, 5 minutes by walk to the Rynek square. We had to park our car in a dark street behind hostel because the payed secured places were sold out - reserve in advance! Staff talks good english.
Hostel is very close to the train station where we came from the airport, nice view from 7th floor, clean and enough equipped. The only negatives are no stove after 11PM (why?) and only two showers for all the rooms (another one is 7 floors down). But we only experienced crowded kitchen, no problems with waiting for shower. Rooms are quite small but good enough if you plan to spend most time out. Staff was kind and helpful. Would recommend for few nights stay.

This hostel is simply awesome. In the center with very friendly and talkative staff, providing breakfasts and organizing events for guests. The only little disadvantage is the size of the rooms, they are not exactly too big, but who stays there anyway? It is a hostel, room is just for sleeping :-) I can highly recommend this place, one of the best hostels I've ever been to!
Room was clean, staff was kind and helpful. The location is quite fine, there is a metro up to 5 minutes by walk, train station behind the corner. However the room, corridors or stairs, everything was very tiny, no equipment in the room, almost no furniture and all looked pretty faded. Walls are so thin that you can hear your neighbours from all sides. It is good for money for overnight stay close to the train station. Do not recommend for longer stays.

Really nice, pretty new hostel. It is a bit more expensive but you can find really nice and friendly environment with nice and helpful stuff (a bit crazy maybe :-)). They do organize events for guests. Hostel is shoeless, everywhere are carpets so you can feel really comfortable. Rooms are nice and big enough, location is great. I was only missing an opportunity to print (as I needed to print my fly ticket). You will probably be able to find cheaper hostel in Philly, but this one is really nice.
The hostel is very minimalistic, everything is very small (rooms, kitchen..). Location is good, less than 10 minutes by walk from the main train (and bus) station, 20 minutes by walk from capitol and mall. 24h grocery store is just two blocks away. It was overall clean and the stuff helpful. I like the idea of shoeless hostel where you are not allowed to wear shoes inside. After whole day of walking was a great opportunity for foots to get some rest. It worth its price.
There is no internet connection and they were installing AC while I was there but did not work yet (they say both on the page when you make reservation what I consider to be fair). The price is one of the lowest you can get in NY and the location is great (on the metro, just next to central park). Room was big and the common room is also very nice. They try to prepare some program for visitors, I can recommend this especially if you travel alone and wanna meet interesting people.
It is located in Qeens, a bit further from the tourist attractions, but probably the cheapest place you can get in NY. Walking distance to Astoria blvd metro station is about 15 minutes (there is bus going there) and grocery store is about 5 blocks away. One more block is small shopping mall with restaurants and other stuff. Stuff was kind, especially the girl from Argentina and it was overall clean and quiet place. Rooms not so big, but nice and big kitchen (with pool and table soccer).
The hotel has a cool atmosphere, room was big (double bed room) and more or less clean (considering cheap hostel in MC), we have even had a TV in the room. There are plenty common places where you can meet other people and organized trips everyday. We made the trip to pyramids and it was really cool. Stuff is friendly but depends on every person some of them are less talkative and obliging. Hostel provides free breakfasts. As a result would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others.
Amazing hostel just 2 blocks far from the cable car where you meet many young people mainly from Europe. Room was clean, internet working, provided pancakes for breakfast, places where to sit and meet the other guests. Really nice place where to stay in the downtown of SF with friendly and helpful staff with very good prices for accommodation.
There is no Vista hostel at all, you actually stay in the Howard-Johnson Inn (Vista is probably just a company which rents the H-J rooms). The place is really cool, the pool with the square in the middle, private parking lot and location just on the Las Vegas blvd not far from the main center of LV.
